I'm building a Vivier Seil. While I hope to sail at least a bit more than I row, I expect I'll occasionally put in a day under oars. Much of my boating is in remote spots where gear breakage is not easily addressed.
I currently use and enjoy Duck Trap oarlocks. They are robust and well machined. I was planning to install more of them when I got distracted by some folding Davis pattern options:

I like the idea of the oarlock captive right where I want it, ready to deploy easily at a moment. However I'm concerned that they look a bit thinner and less robust than standard oarlocks. The positive reviews I've seen here have mostly referred to use on tenders, not on heavier, longer-journeying boats. Any experience or thoughts on this application would be appreciated.
